A traditional dark Mild, with hints of chocolate and caramel with the slight hoppy finish of the Mild style but with a twist from the New Zealand grown Pacific Jade and Pacifica hops.

On cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Good near black body, off white head. Both the nose and taste carried a gentle hoppy quality to it, mixed with a certain amount of burntness. Lasting finish, quite a decent mild this one.

nulptr (114) - SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2013
draft at Dagda. slightly light for a black IPA. chocolate notes in the nose matched in the taste. hops mostly turn up in the finish. surprisingly tasty for a 3.6% beer, if not terribly complex.

Cask conditioned handpump Old Fountain London 23/07/12. A near black coloured beer with a thin off-white head. A smoky and slightly sour mild. The NZ hops dont add citricity. Interesting flavour of acidity which may not be totally wanted. A bit of chocolate. Decent enough in places.
